Welcome!

Welcome to Joshie Fishbein's Advanced Standing Portfolio! The content on this website is a collection of my original photography, digital art, web design, essays, and miscellaneous projects. This porfolio both a reflection of my personality and interests, as well as being the best definition of what I have learned thus far in my studies. For a further investigation of my interests and studies, please visit my essays page.

So Joshie, how do I work this crazy website of yours?

Well, you can move content left and right using the arrows directly to the left. If you would like to switch between different the categories of my work, you can select the desired section from the button panel below. Also, the background diamonds can be moved around to your liking. Just click the header towards the top-right and use the arrows on my CMYK Imagemap Interface to make your very own diamond design!

Click the "BACK" button to return to the content and to save your diamond design as the site's background.

Not all of you that are reviewing this portfolio may know exactly who I am, so I will give you some brief background information. I was born and mostly raised in North Jersey, where my family still currently resides. I've always been interested in alternative and creative thinking through the arts and with my early and deep exposure to computation and technology, I have been conveniently bred for the New Media program. I wear thick-framed, nerdy glasses and always love having a good time and, most importantly, showing others a better one.

The following photo is one of me and my face in the woods surrounding the school.

Alright Joshie, you seem pretty cool but tell me more about the design of your portfolio?

This may not seem like your average advanced standing portfolio. Last year, James (a good friend of mine who is also a New Media student at Purchase), showed me the JavaScript library of jQuery. In combination with JavaScript, PHP, HTML5, and CSS3, I have utilized jQuery to create a site of transitions; one where all content is loaded simultaneously and can be accessed without requiring the user to relocate to another page (though I have added just a few more pages).

More importantly, the content on this website is loaded with PHP scripts that refer to a local MySQL database, which has allowed me to concentrate more thoroughly on the design aesthetic of the portfolio and less on hard-coding each and every component.

    The browser's View Source option may be one of the better methods to inspect these scripts, but for a more indepth understanding of how I constructed the site, you can download this zip file, which contains all active scripts of this portfolio.
